It’s more fun to do yard work if you can do it while simultaneously annoying the stupid-looking movie shoot that’s happening at the church that got gentrified into a wedding hall across the street by playing music you love (but they’ll hate) as loud as possible.

I would have left them alone if they hadn’t made me move my goddam trashcans.

tips for forming a nu metal band

As a once popular artist within the nu metal genre myself, I thought I’d be in a great position to tell this person exactly what to do and where to go.

blogging every day

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to post a blog post every day! Clearly I’m already breaking my vow, but let’s start off 2019 with a bang by just saying that I am still in love with heavy metal, and I think that this 2017 song by Unleash the Archers is some of the […]
